Description of special:

On Monday May 15th, 2017 KBOO is collaborating with a dozen other radio stations in the US, Canada, Europe and Palestine for a special 12-hour broadcast – Radio Free Palestine – reflecting on six decades of displacement. This will be available on KBOO’s second stream – on our website only.

Join us as we reflect on the 69th anniversary of the Nakba, or the Palestinian catastrophe. We will bring you the voices of those who will never forget -- from Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, to 1948-Palestine, and around the world. From 10 am to 10 pm, Radio Free Palestine will amplify the voices of those whose will is to resist, and whose wish is to return.

This broadcast is hosted by CKUT in Montreal, Canada, with participation by the International Middle East Media Center in Beit Sahour Palestine, CKDU in Halifax, CFRC in  Kingston Ontario, CILU in Thunder Bay, CFUV in Victoria, WPFW in Washington DC, KPFK in Los Angeles, KPFA in Berkeley, Radio Resonance in London, and of course your home grown community station in Portland Oregon KBOO.

Check out more information on Radio Free Palestine on May 15th.
